Now that our 2nd issue is out (and free again btw) we've done some fine tuning and learned a lot more about what we want, I'd LOVE to hear your comments about this month's issue. If you haven't seen it yet, go get it... it's in the Boutique.

Ack! My computer is spazzing out and not letting me see it. Can't wait. The brief glimpse I had looked great!

Mine did too...I ended up having to "buy" it a second time (and re-start my computer). Maybe i shouldn't have let Jasmine chew on the mouse lol

It looks great though! Just beautiful! Can't wait to use the kit :)

Looks like we had lots of people DLing at once, so if you were trying to read while DLing, it was messing up. So, we're changing the DL to a zip file to solve the problem. Thanks for your patience!

Oh yeah, I think that's what my problem was... I was trying to scan through the pages while it was dl'ing. I'll try again!

ROFL Rachael -- of course, not only is that chick CUTE but she's very talented as well :)

I think I grabbed it right before Laura took it down -- mine would not unzip so I'll try again after it's up again.

Laura in future months, maybe you want to put the link in the staff forum a day before release so you have a little bit of time to see if there are any problems. I don't envy you all that you must do behind the scenes to keep things clicking around here but here's a {HUG} for you -- you're doing a super fien job!

That happened to me too at first... I had to right click and save it to my hard drive, then open it in Adobe......

My brain is kicking in...

for those doing articles...get your rough draft to SINEAD by the last day of the month...

we need to gradually get ahead - this schedule would NEVER work for a print publication...we need to get done with March by the end of Feb - we should be done with April when March launches...at least content wise

the deadlines for the layouts, samples, articles...the 6th is cutting it way too close - Rachel, Sinead and I end up pulling all nighters trying to assemble that content - and that's not leaving us even enough time to EDIT it - we can't put pages together without the layouts - so the 6th is way too late (sorry for those who this puts in a time crunch - but in the future it will work itself out - it's just going to be a time crunch for march and april if we get our acts together)

the pre-run of the pdf needs to be ready by the 6th - and it needs proofed by Sinead (yes, even after she proofs the rough drafts of the articles - which should be submitted to her via the ftp access or email as soon as you possibly can) BEFORE we do the footers, page numbering and then send it to RACHEL for links

SOOOO - if at all possible, we, the De-Zine team, would like everything by FEBRUARY 28th at the LATEST - this includes your ADS

If this puts too much pressure on you - PLEASE LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY - We can bail you out, lift you up - or pester the daylights out of you as needed - to get this thing together more efficiently :)

Moving on...APRIL -

it's going to be a major jam right into march...but will help us to be much more on the ball and put out a fabulous production, eh??

THANKS for all of your hard work and for listening to my little tid-bit of input here :)
